Commemorative medallion and certificate of recognition
The Australian Government has produced a 50th anniversary commemorative medallion and certificate of recognition, honouring the service of Australians who served in the Vietnam War.
On 29 March 2023, Prime Minister Hon Anthony Albanese MP and Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Matt Keogh officially announced the medallion, presenting a group of Vietnam veterans with their commemorative medallion and certificate, at a special ceremony held at Parliament House, acknowledging their service and sacrifice in Vietnam.
The commemorative medallion and certificate is available to all Australian men and women who served in Vietnam, and to the family of veterans who have since passed away or were tragically killed in action during the Vietnam War.
